For those of you who have been waiting for the grand opening of Daiso Plano, time is now!
Daiso Plano’s grand opening has been rescheduled for September 23-24.
As most of you may be aware, Daiso is a discount store created in Hiroshima in 1972. The Japanese thrift store chain has since expanded out to over 3,000 locations worldwide.
Daiso is loved by so many, mainly because it combines Japan’s kawaii(cute) culture with the country’s respect for professionalism and politeness.
The end result is a store that is clean and modern in its organization, and filled to the brim with products that are joyful, practical, and–at $1.50 per pop–affordable.
The store is organized into ordinary sections including cosmetics, snacks, crafts and stationery, housewares and fashion. But don’t be fooled. This is not your ordinary stop-n-shop. The food section boasts plum/wasabi peanuts, milk-flavored fried cookie dough and squid leg jerky. Meanwhile, back in housewares, you’ll find dozens of tea cups featuring cartoon animals (like a pig working out at the gym and a cat giving an inspirational speech). You can also pick up lunchboxes made specifically for sushi, oven mitts shaped like hedgehogs, pastel toilet plungers, lucky cat figurines, straw garden hats with festive brims, paper lanterns and memory foam flip flops.
Expect a long line of Daiso shoppers on the grand opening day.
Although the Plano store is only the third in Texas, both previous Texas openings have been huge hits with both Japanese immigrants and urban explorers who adore Daiso’s unique treasures.
The first 100 shoppers to make a purchase at the Plano location on grand opening days will receive goody bags. Weekend shoppers will also receive raffle tickets for a drawing on Saturday at 5pm.
